Sivakasi, a fast flourishing industrial town, famous for crackers and highly advanced printing technology, proudly is displaying a great modern temple of imposing dimensions and excellent architectural embellishments. This newly built Sakti shrine is dedicated to Bhadrakali, one of the fearful amsas of Mother Parvathi, the Ichchasakti aspect of the Universal Mother Adiparasakti. It is a munificent benefaction of the Nadar community, whose entrepreneurial acumen won universal acclaim. Though this blooming town enshrines many holy places of worship built for almost all divinities adorning the Hindu pantheon like Mariamman koil, Sivan koil etc. this lures a steady steam of devotees from morn to even.

In the vast courtyard, there are many mandirs for several deities, like Durga, Kannivinayakar, Peechiamma, Karuppuswamy, Virabhadrar, Murugan, Irulappa, Bhairava, Madaswamy etc. In the outer prakara there is installed Panchamukha Vinayak, an awe-some five foot high granite image that raises the hands of the devotees at first sight itself. The ace sculptural artistry wrings veneration and brings credit to both patrons and craftsmen. There are also many niches for lyyappa, Murugan, Sivan, Perumal, Karuppuswamy, Kachikkari Amman and other adorable images in this Prakara.

The temple boasts of a wide variety of prayer services beginning from 5.30 am to 10 pin with break of 4 hours. The periodical festivals falling in Panguni and Chaitra draw unmanageable crowds.

It lies in the sequestered southern side of town, accessible by auto or cycle rickshaw from any part of the town bus stand.
